Calls for Submissions - Anthology

My fabulous friend, Pat Bubash, is putting together an anthology: "Marriage Blisters.The irritating spousal behaviors that rub you wrong or like a painful blister: raw." 

Isn't that a great title? Doesn't it make you want to read all about it? And, doesn't it make you want to contribute some of your darling, wonderful, and sometimes annoying husband's behaviors??  And don't worry. Everything will be confidential. No real names used.

Here is one of her quotes about her new book: "I refuse to believe that any couple has NO complaints - impossible, when we share space everyday with our other half. I know George Clooney(10 plus that he is) has to have one irritating behavior - maybe smiling too much!"


Pat is an extraordinary woman. Just look at her credentials! Marriage counselor, author, speaker. She published "Successful Second Marriages," in 2009. It can be purchased from Amazon in both paperback and Kindle edition.

When thinking about a marriage counselor you may think: Serious, Straight Forward, Soft Spoken.
And yes, Pat has those traits, but she's also a warm, friendly, and funny woman. I'm so grateful that our paths crossed a couple of years ago at.....where else... a book function! At a library!


If you're interested in learning more about submitting a story (or more) for this anthology, please contact Pat at:

patriciathecounselor@successfulsecondmarriages.com


And tell her, Becky sent me! (yes, the very forgetful Becky who was supposed to post this days ago, but I made sure I did this morning, before my cousin and I begin our day.)

  1. Thanks Becky. Been married 43 years! I should be able to write an entire book on just that.

    Enjoy your time with your cousin.

  6. Been with my partner for over thirty years. And have been known to tell him that I would have served less time for murder.
    Have a great weekend.

I love comments, especially because I know the time it takes to stop and type one, even a short one! Thanks very much!
